Mr. Roth

Before LEAD: I was a Special Education teacher at Park Hill South High School for 3 years. Prior to that, I taught elementary Physical Education for 4 years at Gordon Parks Elementary School, in Kansas City, MO.

Why I’m at LEAD:  I decided to move to LEAD to challenge myself professionally and show my students the importance of physical activity in their daily life and learning.  

What I’m most looking forward to: I’m excited to see the amazing things our teachers can do and what our students can achieve!

About Me: My wife, Amanda, and I have one dog - Toby - who full of energy and loves to run and play.  My wife and I met at UCM in a dance class and have been married for 6 years.  I am the head cross country and assistant track coach at Park Hill South.  Running has always been a part of my life and I enjoy sharing one of my passions with a great group of athletes.
